1. Woman lives in water for 20 years.

In 1998, Paturani Josh who lives in Vardhman of West Bengal was diagnosed with a weird and mysterious disease that allegedly left her body badly inflamed, painful and sore. For the last 20 years she has spent 12-14 hours a day submerged up to her neck in a lake that is near her home. She apparently rushes there at the crack of dawn and does not leave the water till sunset because it relieves her from the pain.

2. The World's Dirtiest Man.

He is an 83 year old called Amou Haji. He harbours a strange dislike for soap and water and is said to have had his last bath in 1954. What is clean to us is horrible and despicable to him. He is exhaustively caked with dirt and eats rotten porcupines for lunch and dinner.
